believe to be a terrorist act, against our consulate in benghazi on the 11th anniversary of the attacks of september 11. these attacks do many things, but they remind us i think first of the bravery and commitment of government officials who serve in countries around the world, supporting the struggles of people in those countries, to live free. and by doing so work to improve our own national security. the attack in libya also reminds us that even though the core of al qaeda has been seriously weakened, we still face threats from an evolving and fractious set of terrorist groups and individuals united by a common ideology which is that of haven't -- violent islamist extremism. i'll have some questions to ask the three of you about the nature of the terrorist threat today and specifically with regard to the reaction to this film whether you think it has raised the threat level against any places or institutions or individuals here in the united states. reporting to us on the terrorist threat to the homeland today, i also hope you'll address other concerns such as the effort to counter h

on a different topic. it seems that the u.s. ande and libya have different accounts of the attacks in benghazi. there are reports that libyan officials warned the u.s. of the growing extremist threat prior to the attack. they admit they had could not control these militias. that directly counter what is administration officials have said. this is just a reaction to the islamic film. >> what i can tell you is that we have the right information about what we believe was the per siptating cause of the protest and the violence. based on the information that we have had available. there is an ongoing investigation, the f.b.i. is investigating, and that investigation will follow the facts wherever they lead. what we do know about libya is that it's a country that emerged from war and revolution and you have a new government trying to assert its authority as that country makes a transition to democracy and broader representation for all libyans. and broader rights for all libyans. and in that environment there are certainly in this post-war, post-revolution environment, there are vast numbers of weap
. >> we hear from you fully about your -- benghazi right now and a couple of specifics i want to ask you. was there ever any discussion, after the benghazi attack, of putting marines at the compound in benghazi to help secure it? and what is your assessment and analysis of al qaeda and al qaeda affiliates or inspired organizations there, their ability to assemble and generate an attack capability of this sort very rapidly, and for the united states to openly have no sense that it needed to provide the security to meet that potential threat? what does it say to you about al qaeda related groups in that region? >> okay. first of all with regards to benghazi, what we, what we responded to was a request to provide a f.a.s.t. team that would go into tripoli and try to provide additional security there and we responded to that and did that. at that point, for all intents and purposes, benghazi had been, you know, pretty much unoccupied by any of the diplomatic and, other security personnel that were there. so, the main focus then was on tripoli and the embassy in tripoli and that's what we res

owe everything to the united states of america. he said benghazi would have been completely lost were it not for the crites of america and what it is that we did to bring about the kind of liberation they so desperately needed having been repressed for 42 years under gaddafi. he went on to say that as we look at libya, it's important to note that the tragic murder of ambassador stevens did not come from the people of libya, it came from individuals. a few individuals. he said the people of libya love the american people. and revere the american people. you know, i suspect that as we're talking about russian pntr, that the same thing exists in russia. because they're living with great oppression. they're living with what is little more than an authoritarian dictatorship with the crony capitalism and violations of human rights we're seeing but mr. speaker, the people of russia and i know many russians, we all do, they have great respect and love for us as well. so again, our goal is to bring to an end repressive policies and use, as my friend so eloquently said, the economic strength of
for the state department and for her country. we've seen that heavy assault on our post in benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. we've seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an awful internet video that we have nothing to do with. it is hard for the american people to make sense of that because it is senseless and it is totally unacceptable. the people of egypt, libya, yemen and tunisia did not trade the tyranny of the tape trader for the tyranny of a mob. reasonable people and responsible leaders in these countries need to do everything they can to restore security and hold accountable those behind these violent acts. and we will, under the president's leadership, keep taking steps to protect our personnel around the world. there will be more difficult days ahead, but it is important that we don't lose sight of the fundamental facts that america must keep leading the world. we owe it to those four men to continue the long, hard work of diplomacy. i am enormously proud of the men and women of the state department. i am proud of all those across our government, c

. >> reporter: but mitt romney is now facing tough questions, too. while the battle in benghazi was still going on, romney attacked the obama administration as disgraceful. saying the administration's first reaction was to sympathize with those who waged the attacks. this was based on a statement from the u.s. embassy in egypt, condemning the anti-muslim movie, one issued before it was even attacked. in a press conference, romney was unapologetic. >> an apology for america's values is never the right course. >> reporter: eager to throw a punch himself, the president fired back on cbs news' "60 minutes." >> governor romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later. as president, one of the things i learned is you can't do that. >> reporter: george, conventional wisdom has it that any day the campaign is not focused on the struggling economy is a good day for president obama. but there remain these unanswered questions about insufficient security at the diplomatic posts on the anniversary of 9/11. one that could potentially hurt president obama. >> you also raise that question in your

oo the u-s consulate complex in benghazi on tuesday, pelting it with gunfire and rooket-propelled grenades. the siege ignited a fire, filling the safe room with smoke, and driving at least one person in it to the roof. in the end, four died, incluuing the u-s ambassadorr to libya, chrii stevens, who helped save bbnghazi during last year's revolution. he's the first u-s ambassador to be killed since 19-79. a life-long friend opened up about the loss. i lost someone whooactually unconditionally loved just about everybody. but i think what the world lost was a great diplomaa who was interested in peace and humanity and really understood the culture of the middle east. a senior staffer at the senate foreign relations committee was also among his friends. this was his cclling in life. he basscally said this is what he was meant to do. and he was willing to take the risk and it's so unfortunate that that risk finally overtooo him. it's tragic, but i think he died living out his life's mission. sean smith, a foreign service information management officer, was also killed. smith
